In Cathays we have a thriving level of residents from all age ranges. This page will develop over time to define a better demographic representation of your district of Cathays.

Every single time the hardcopy Your Cathays Newsletter goes out – we find more long term resdients and new families living in the area. This will be reflected in the street family population numbers below.

The resident density levels by streets (alphabetically) and overall percentage per street.

So far – approximately 1,500 families and counting!!

Using 2017 information – next revision Your Cathays #11 or 12 in 2020 when we revise the numbers.

It may possibly be 1,400 to 1,500 families living in Cathays !! This page has been designed for several reasons – namely to make you aware of how many neighbours you have, and secondly the data can help local voluntary bodies/businesses/services reach out to you!

We are actively revising the numbers each time we distribute the newsletter and find more families/residents as we go along! If you think our data is way off on your street – please contact us and correct us!

This information is based on relentless years of door knocking and finding all of you which from 2011 served as the basis of creating the ‘Your Cathays’ newsletter – to get free information out to all of you in the hope of making a stronger and more cohesive community.

This information has been produced to stop the negative assumption that Cathays is some sort of ghost town in the summer – there are hundreds of families (the newsletter goes to 1,400-1,500 families – not including city centre which is part of Cathays) and the more neighbours we find in the future we will revise the information per street.

With more babies being born in the district in the mid 2010’s compared to 10-20 years ago – our demographic is increasing and Cathays is becoming an increasingly socially mobile district with many talented and decent people now living here!
